Displacement encoder

The displacement encoder is a slide potentiometer with longitudinal contact and no connecting-rods. It delivers a voltage signal that is proportional to the pickup position. The pickup position is determined by the piston stroke. The voltage range, which will depict the minimal and maximal piston position, can be defined within the range -10 V to +10 V by the user. The displacement encoder requires a power supply of at least 13 V.
